As the wave of reforms continues within aged care, we stop to take a closer look at ‘Quality’ within aged care. What does it take to achieve quality aged care, and what really is the quality manager’s role in quality care?

Drawing on her years of experience as a quality manager and working with organisations in the pursuit of quality care, Dr Cathy Balding will take us on a journey to understand the importance of the aged care quality manager’s role, how to make it a success and how it fits within the broader clinical governance landscape.
